Will Betsy DeVos be Secretary for Education?

Betsy DeVos bought the position. She said so. Why did the senators who questioned her not ask her about her direct statement? Don't the people deserve to hear exactly what DeVos has intended to do? I think the senators were too kind to her.
“I have decided to stop taking offense,” she wrote, “at the suggestion that we are buying influence. Now I simply concede the point. They are right. We do expect something in return. We expect to foster a conservative governing philosophy consisting of limited government and respect for traditional American virtues. We expect a return on our investment.”

She wants religious education to have more influence, and of course, specifically Christian religious education. She wants public money paying for that. She has used her money to achieve this and intends this position is part of her plan. She wants to turn education back to before the formation of this country, to ultimately allow control of the nation by the clergy of specific churches.

I can't think of how this appointment can be stopped, but I deeply hope it is anyway.

  2. As noted by Xiaoxia, Heeju, Nicci and Stone (2010) the factors that contribute to the problems of teacher education and teacher retention are varied and complex, but one factor that teacher educators are concerned about is the alternative pathways through which teacher education occur. https://www.essayskills.com/reviews/orderyouressay.html
